It took me a little while to get into this book, because Bond doesn’t actually make an appearance until a third of the way through it, but by the end of the novel, it did make sense that he didn’t take the full focus. The story starts with a woman, as it often does, who’s working in a motel when a pair of thugs show up and start to cause havoc. There’s no-one else there to help her. Then Bond shows up with a flat tyre, on his way home from an assignment. You can probably see where this is going.
The Spy Who Loved Me was a lot of fun, and I’m glad that I read it – it’s also a pretty short book, which means that you can speed through it easily. In fact, it’s probably one of the best introductions there is to Bond.
